financial burden, a huge problem that is going to blow our budgets and our deficit apart. that is what the american people are looking at command that is why, you know -- lou: they are not looking at that, if i may. you know, they may, as they read your book, as they listen to dr. brown and his colleague, but the reality is, they're looking at a train wreck. the expression was used to describe the website. it is so monumentally massively more than that that it is incomprehensible. the number. $17 trillion. 9 million people added to the medicaid rolls. we are looking at an explosion of entitlements and debt and possibly devastation to the deficit and to the country if we don't get in charge of it. >> you are absolutely -- >> this president seems to have no sense of what to do. i will give you the last word here congressman, but it seems the republicans don't have the answers either. >> you are absolutely correct. it is monumental. needs to be totally ripped out by the roots and replaced with something such as my patient option act. we do have some republicans and democrats that wants to

, and that deficit can compound itself over time. and finally, rising inequality and declining mobility are bad for our democracy. ordinary folks can't write massive campaign checks or hire high- priced lobbyists and lawyers to secure policies that tilt the playing field in their favor at everyone else's expense. and so people get the bad taste that the system is rigged, and that increases cynicism and polarization, and it decreases the political participation that is a requisite part of our system of self-government. so this is an issue that we have to tackle head on. and if, in fact, the majority of americans agree that our number- one priority is to restore opportunity and broad-based growth for all americans, the question is, why has washington consistently failed to act? and i think a big reason is the myths that have developed around the issue of inequality. first, there is the myth that this is a problem restricted to a small share of predominantly minority poor -- that this isn't a broad-based problem, this is a black problem or a hispanic problem or a native american problem. now, it's

administrations have danced around the mission of our infrastructure deficit. for all the attention to the various fiscal cliffs, the looming infrastructure deficit is every bit as critical. for two centuries, infrastructure was a bipartisan issue, from lincoln with the transcontinental railroad to democrats and republicans coming together to launch the interstate freeway system, signed into law by president eisenhower, subsequent roads, transit and water investments helped fuel our economy and tie the nation together. more recently, the failure to address long-term funding has also been bipartisan. the bush administration ignored strong recommendations from their own private sector experts that they impaneled to give advice. although the obama administration did request and employ some modest funding in the recovery act and has proposed an infrastructure bank and talked extensively and i think sincerely about the need for investment, what has been lacking has been a specific concrete proposal from either party to address infrastructure financing in america. while the political maneuvering has sec

's infrastructure deficit. roads, bridges, transit systems are all increasingly at risk. we are facing an inadequate state of repair, construction of new facilities are on hold and we are losing ground in meeting our own needs, let alone the challenges of global competition. yet, this challenge is an opportunity for some potential progress. we know what to do to meet this challenge. we can write a new transportation bill that will meet today's needs. it just needs more money. there is a vast coalition that supports additional resources for infrastructure. the so-called special interests that are so often at odds are remarkably aligned when it comes time to recognize and fix this problem. business, labor, professional groups, local government, environmentalists, truckers, bicyclists all agree. the paralysis that surrounds questions of raising taxes does not necessarily need to apply in this case. ronald reagan, after all, was willing to sign into law a five cent gasoline tax increase 31 years ago when a nickel a gallon was real money. a user fee is in fact a different category from a general tax incr

budget, offering responsible solutions to address the budget deficit, cancel the sequester and grow the economy. last march we offered our budget for fiscal year 2014 as an alternative to the budget that was adopted by the house. the c.b.c. budget makes tough choices. but not at the expense of our most vulnerable communities. the c.b.c. budget offers a concrete plan that both cancels the economically disastrous sequester and then pays for that cancellation. our budget is able to do so while also protecting social security, medicare, medicaid, snap nutrition benefits and other vital safety net programs that protect millions of americans from poverty. c.b.c. budget also reduces the nation's budget deficit by approximately $2.8 trillion over the next decade, compared to the february baseline calculated by the congressional budget office. other ideas have been presented in the past to either cancel the sequester or reduce the deficit. they almost always include significant cuts to social security and medicare. these ideas have included changing the way the social security benefits are c
